I have a question about my sewing machine.
I have been very happy with a Singer Touch and Sew 626. The machine was built around 1966. I have not had any problems with it until just recently. The bobbin thread was all gnarled. I took it in for service and was told I would need a new ‘bobbin winder drive’ . The part would have to be ordered and it would cost $65. Labor would cost $150.
I could buy a new machine for around $100 – but should I? I’m not inclined – but am I being impractical? I do household sewing – I want something practical and durable. I really want to keep my old machine, but is that practical?
I would really like your opinion.
